SOAR

BENDIGEDIG



CD

Released: 27th Apr 2018

£11.99


another beautiful collaboration from the welsh harpist and sengalese kora virtuoso – if you’re looking for sonic tranquillity, you’ve come to the right place.

The release is the duo’s first since their award-winning debut album ‘Clychau Dibon’ (2013). They have been touring the world ever since, drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, delighting audiences with their exhilarating live performances. ‘SOAR’ explores themes of migration and journeys, both emotional and physical, and continues the duo’s intrepid exploration and celebration of the parallels and differences between their two instruments and cultures. The harp occupies a vital place in the incredibly rich cultures of both West Africa and Wales, and both nations share a centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history, expressed through music, song and verse.
